It has great food,,,,,,,welcoming staff.......friendly patrons......They have never disappointed me with their specials. I would recommend this place to families. I never knew they did breakfast,,,,,but they stopped doing it so I guess I will have to be happy with their fine dinners.

Looking for a quirky, fun and funky place for a nice meal in Crestview? The Wild Olive is it. Just a block off the main drag in an older restored home, their American fusion menu is varied and everything looks good. We couldn't decide on...JUST ONE plate so had a few items. Be sure to read the sayings and wall hangings ;)More

Relaxed atmosphere and great service. Food is always good and the desserts are always tempting. My favorite lunch place.

Valentines brunch buffet was amazing. Everything from the perfectly cooked eggs( not runny and no water in bottom of dish.) to the deserts. The ability of being able to put together shrimp and grits your way was fantastic, From extra cheese, how many shrimp you...put on , bacon bits, green onions. Turkey bacon Gouda sandwich’s. The waffles were perfect for chicken and waffles. Wife loved the apple butter, she only wished they sold jars of it! The staff was great as usual. I can’t wait until they do another brunch buffet again. Don’t worry staff we still come in for date night.More

Great job TA! While on very long drive, we wanted a good food stop! Looked at TA and Wild Olive had wonderful reviews. We were 30 mins out and I wasn’t sure about open times, so I called and the host was so kind and...explained some of menu and put us on wait list and we would be at top when we got there. We walked right in to this charming place. We had chicken and waffles and my daughter had Gus sandwich. All was delish and fresh!! Our precious server was so sweet and attentive even though she was busy! Would have thought we were only table, she was so attentive!!! Great place and very reasonable prices ! Next time we travel through, we are stopping! Have added to my faves! So thanks again TA! Wouldn’t have stopped without those reviewsMore

AMAZING FOOD!! The service was great! I ordered the chicken Tuscana which was full of flavor. My husband got the salmon. We had the cheesecake for dessert, which was very tasty. The bread and olive oil served in the beginning was also amazing! Highly recommend!

In a renovated older home off the main track to the beaches, THIS is a MUST STOP AGAIN, for sure! We split a Thai salad, add a grilled Mahi filet and topped it off with Creme Brulee. Oh, after an appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes...and Seafood chowder....all we're amazing! Do not miss this gem when anywhere near Crestview, Florida, make a U-Turn and look for it. They have a short lunch window from 11 to 2, and open again at 5 for dinner until 8.More

We enjoyed an amazing meal and stellar service. Their menu offers a wide variety of delicious options, but the staff is also happy to accept custom orders. Highly recommend!

Food: First time to order the Pecan Crusted Pork Chop and it did not disappoint! Crispy out and tender within with absolutely no greasiness! The mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus were the perfect accompaniment. The Blu cheese dressing on the side salad was fabulous! Generous...portions with enough to take half home to enjoy later. The Turtle cheese cake was wonderful and thick so some of it was also taken home. Service: Was excellent except we had to remind the server that our bread and oil was missing. Environment: The nostalgic old house is interesting but has poor acoustics for table discussions. At least there is no blaring music. The table in front of the fire place has a slightly raised hearth-floor that prevents one from easily moving a chair closer or further from the table. A skinny person should sit there! Swapping out for a smaller nearby table would solve the issue.More
